Considerations in buying a wearable smart gadget:
The first thing that comes to our brain while purchasing any product is the budget limit. When it comes to wearable gadgets, the price usually starts from a minimum of $30 and can reach the sky like $500 or beyond.

1. How am I going to use this device in my daily life?
2. What features are embedded in it, which I might require?
3. Is my smartphone any less than this device?
4. How many devices am I going to connect this device with?
5. Except for fitness regime, tracking phenomenon, monitoring, what else does it offer?
Once you’re done answering these questions, decide whether this purchase is worth your money and usage.
It looks like 2016 is going to be a really exciting year. There would be so much cool tech which just looks as if it came out of a science fiction movie! I am not able to wait for these wearables! Are you?
